On Wednesday, the Ohio Supreme Court dismissed without comment a lawsuit filed by the Dayton Tea Party, which wanted the Ohio Municipal League and the Ohio Township Association to release records about their finances, operations, and lobbying efforts.

The lone dissent came from Justice Robert Cupp, who said he was open to being further briefed on the case.

The lawsuit, filed in June, grew out of a public records request from the Tea Party filed to find out more about the groups’ opposition to repealing Ohio’s estate tax and support for increased local government spending. The groups argued they were not subject to Ohio’s public records requirements.
